Rob sent me following text: “Hello! Received a metabones c-mount to m4/3 adapter today. The fit was so tight it almost got stuck on my GH-1. Looks like others have had similar experiences: http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/archive/index.php/t-249698.html. Since this adapter might damage any m4/3 camera it is fitted to, it would be cool if you could issue a warning on 43Rumors. Would have saved me some trouble…..I was able to file off some metal, and now have a ok fit. But this really should not be neccesary on what is a dapter marketed as “professional”. Will definitely go for a chep China adapter again next time.

    The video review of the Ep3 is one of the worst I have seen. There is no detailed information and the reviewer seems to know little about the camera and the comparisons he makes with previous models. One mention of function buttons, no mention of program-ability of these buttons, no discussion of ISO, frame rates or WB. Nice to see the camera, but that is all.

    • WT21

      Agreed. Hopefully more good reviewers, with actual things to say, will start reviewing soon.

    Very disappointed with the Olympus offerings. Besides AF, nothing else is exciting. The camera overall looks cheaper than the EP-2. The non-brushed body, patch up grip?, cheap looking flash, top dial buttons specially the shutter look cheezy and overall same 2 year old design.

    So Olympus think they can sell/release the EP-3 at $900 on the same (maybe) month when Panasonic GF Pro, Samsung NX and Sony NEX-7 are announced? They should’ve release this thing 1 year ago. Olympus better have something else to compete with these upcoming cameras from the competition.

    Thank you for having my video ‘sunlight in trees’ linked from this article! :)

    I’m really getting tired of these amateur video with non-broadcast-compatible voices, no plan and no useful content at all. Dear Admin, at minimum level of information/quality would be appreciated! I don’t get excited by watching someone unbox or touch a camera.

    • admin

      Than send me some link you think it’s worth to post! Thanks!

  • A good thing: there is room for some improvements on the reviewing skills for this guy! lol

  • Hello mr Sniffles!

  • What bewilders me is how people like this get cameras to review. The whole thing is laughable and insulting to those people who are serious about photography, and who put some work in to what they do.

    Sending one to this site to review would be a much better idea.
